As your baby has eczema, he is probably an allergic infant. His blocked nose is probably due to nasal allergy. He seems to becoming constipated on the NAN-HA as well and may be allergic to cow's milk. Try him on a soya formula such as Infasoy2 and see if things improve all round.If not then he should be seen by a paediatrician with an interest in allergic conditions in children. There are experts in all the main centres in SA.
